What is IBM Real-Time Comression?

IBM Real-time Compression Appliances can transparently compress primary NAS data, so clients can keep up to five times more data online and gain additional efficiencies throughout the data life cycle. By shrinking primary data, all subsequent copies of that data, such as backups, archives, snapshots, and replicas are also compressed. Real-time Compression is the newest advancement in storage efficiency. IBM Real-time Compression Appliances are the only storage compression solutions that can shrink primary, online data in real time, without performance degradation. This can significantly lower storage capital and operating expenses by reducing the amount of data that is stored, powered, and cooled.

IBM Real-time Compression Appliances, STN6500 and STN6800, fit between NAS (IBM N series, NetApp, EMC Celerra) systems and network switches, and can compress primary NAS files and databases up to 80 percent. The appliances can increase application throughput and user response time by helping to improve the efficiency of both application servers and the storage systems. Using IBM’s real-time compression techniques, the STN6500 and STN6800 provide unprecedented cost savings throughout the entire storage life cycle.
